Classic caipirinha cocktail

30 JUNE 2014
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Makes: 1 cocktail


4.5 cl Cachaça Fire Water (ask in your local Latin American store)
2 limes cut into quarters
3 generous spoonfuls of sugar
Crushed ice


1. Put limes and sugar in a mortar

2. Crush the two ingredients until the limes have lost most of their juice, but never remove them.

3. Add Cachaça and mix for a minute inside the mortar and then put in a cocktail shaker with crushed ice until it is half full. Shake thoroughly for a minute and then pour into a short whisky glass. (Caipirinhas are not served in cocktail glasses.)

4. For the final touch, add two straws and enjoy!
